Corsair RM850x White Edition PSU

Introduction

Corsair RM850x White Edition PSU - RushKit

Corsair RM850x White Edition PSU 

In late 2016 Corsair graced us with their Limited Edition Corsair RM1000i Special Edition PSU, a product that was sadly limited to only 100 units worldwide, giving consumers only a tease of the white PSU that many enthusiasts have craved for years. (Video on next page)

There is no hiding the fact that we are fans of White hardware here at OC3D, believing that PC builders deserve variety and that all PCs need not be a standard black box. 

Now Corsair has released their new RMx series of white power supplies, offering a clean white aesthetic that is similar to the RM1000i Special Edition but with a more consumer-friendly price and production-grade quantities.

Specifications

Corsair's RMx PSU designs are the same as their higher-end RMi series offerings, with Corsair removing their Corsair Link components to reduce the pricing of their product, taking away the ability of users to monitor the PSU's load, efficiency and other factors. 

These new White models offer the same designs as their standard black counterparts, offering the same 80+ Gold certification, 100% Japanese 105 -degree capacitors a 0dB low RPM fan mode and Corsair's long 10-year manufacturer's warranty. This PSU is fully modular and comes with the same grey-coloured fan as the standard RMx/RMi series CPUs. 

RMx White series PSUs will come with 750W and 850W versions, which cost £134.99 and £154.99 in the UK respectively, a price increase of £15 and £30 when compared to each PSU's Black counterpart, though this does not take into consideration the addition of all-white sleeved cables for Corsair's white Edition models. 

PSU cable kits typically cost £60 or more, making these new white PSUs excellent value when compared to their all-black counterparts, which do not come with individually sleeved paracord cables.  

The video and more info can be found on the next page.

Did they leave off the fan test button on this one? It's a very nice looking unit.

I wonder if the gold rating will scare a few off. That would be a good article to do sometime, bronze, gold, platinum differences in real world usage.Quote

The fan test feature comes as part of the PSU's Corsair Link components.

I doubt the Gold Rating will put anyone off. The differences in power draw from the wall are minimal going beyond Gold, particularly in the EU where we use 230V.

Strange thing is that in the EU the efficiency that we get with a gold rating is the same as the efficiency requirements of a Platinum rated PSU in the states.

One thing that I do think is strange is how almost no 80+ Silver rated PSUs are available today.Quote
